Wagner Fest — Tony Rogers

Copyright


When he died, over 10,000 books and articles on him had already been penned. By now, more has been written about Wilhelm Richard Wagner (1813-1883) than any other figure in history except Jesus Christ. Naturally, Bikwil doesn’t intend being left out of this never-ending scriptural endeavour, particularly in view of the current Adelaide staging of the first ever Ring by an Aussie opera company.

Ok, what’s on offer here? In a large nutshell: reminiscences, trivia, advice to the agnostic, parodies — even some serious pieces. And true to form, our QQQs focus on the more jocular/sardonic side of 150 years of Wagnerian commentary.

Far from being able to wait 15 years for his bi-centenary, then, Bikwil forthwith pays its intrepid, though somewhat irreverent, homage to the music of you-know-who.
